>> cheryl: welcome back, let's get you caught up on what's happening now. there's concern of turkey's economy, will turkey affect european banks, will turkey possibly need bailout from imf, the lara under pressure, that's hurting global markets, s&p down 11 and a quarter and nasdaq 32 and a half, kansas secretary of state is recusing himself from the vote count, he's trying to win the republican nomination over governor jeff collier who called for recusal. collier trails by 121 votes after two counties reported errors, president trump sounding off against violence in chicago and meeting with governors and state attorney general on prison reform yesterday. >> we must strengthen bonds with law enforcement including cities like chicago that have been absolute and total disaster, 63
incidents and 12 deaths, there's no reason in a million years that something like that should be happening in chicago. cheryl: legislation funding, drug treatment, education and job skill's programs for prisoners, facebook is cracking down on content that helps the public learn how to make 3d printed guns, blueprints are available online and materials used can be purchased online or in person, facebook says content is against community standard and many people asking if this is actually censorship, and lauren, this is what's happening now. lauren: the economy seems to be firing on all cylinders yesterday's report was tamed so should the stock market be even higher, it's a question that we put to lindsey bell, strategists, and david nicholas, good morning, happy friday. >> happy friday. lauren: i will start with you, lindsey, impetus to sell today, turkey in particular, if you look at how we are trading here
in the u.s., the nasdaq is up 8 days in a row, that's the longest winning streak we have seen this year, do you think the economy should be even the stock market should be even higher because where is the inflation, right, gdp looking good, should stocks be higher? >> well, you know what, i think -- you have to remember the s&p 500 is a half percentage point to all-time high reached in january this year, i feel good with the market sgdp and second quarter was outstanding, we might see a little pullback in third quarter given the export number that was in the gdp, but overall fundamentals here in the u.s. are showing earnings in second quarter about 25%, we are looking at 22% for the whole year, the consumer is sentiment and spending is on the rise, so i think that what you're seeing here is overhang from trade, so i think that's really what's
holding the market back. lauren: david, do you think this 4% growth some americans starting to see higher pay czechs, -- paychecks, all the positive things, all the tit for tat spat going on with china? >> unemployment close to 20-year lows, one of the things you mentioned, i have clients that ask me all of the time, david, is a recession pending, the good news is that the probability for a recession is at all-time lows but one of the things that could push us closer to the probability increasing for recession is things like trade wars increasing, so, but the good news like we mentioned earlier that we don't see any fear in sight for the heighten risk of recession but investors need to be careful because when we are at the top of business cycle where i think we are are we have to remain vigilant and
the bull run will not last forever. lauren: you brought up the r word, they talk about how this 3% economic growth that they expect and predict that you are survey say 3% growth this year is not sustainable. if you look at the numbers they say that's expected to go to 2.4 next year and 1.8 in the year 2020 at the same time they say economists see 18% chance of a recession beginning in the next 12 months, lindsey, what do you say? >> well, even if we do have a recession within the next 12 or 24 months which is not what we are predicting, we do expect growth to slow given robust growth we are seeing, but the recessions that we have seen in the past have been milder and that's because we've gotten so much better from economic standpoint, we have become more stable and steady. our economy is much more services oriented and that is a key component.
we've been better at managing inventory so of the last 11 recessions nine of them have only, you've only seen the market fall about 25% on average which sounds like a lot but we are up more than that in the last year. lauren: what do investors do, david? >> i think you want to remain bullish, this is a great time to benefit from markets appreciating but if you're approaching retirement, i know 20% lose may seem not like big deal that can hurt, you want to remain vigilant, take advantage of the growth of the market but if you're approaching retirement remain cautious, you might want to have portion in cash that can get you through year and a half. lauren: thank you. >> thanks so much. cheryl: coming up we continue to follow the devastation in california as the holy fire rages on in the southern part of the state, the man suspected of

lauren: tgif, i'm lauren simonetti, the final frontier as they call it, the trump administration is proposing expanding u.s. military into space with a new branch. cheryl: fox news lauren blanchard with details. >> the time has come to establish the united states space force. >> it would be the first new military branch since the air force in 1947. >> as president trump has said in his words, it is not enough to merely have an american presence in space, we must have american dominance in space. >> vice president mike pence says they plan to ask congress for an additional $8 billion in national security funding over the next 5 years. in a letter to congress last year, defense secretary james mattis said he was not in favor of a space force, but by
thursday he seemingly was on board. >> it's becoming a contested war-fighting domain. >> after announcement at pentagon the president tweeting his excitement, however, critics have said talks about weponizing space could potentially violate the outer space treaty signed in 1967 which prohibits weapons of mass destruction in space. but the white house argues countries like china and russia are already becoming aggressive and it's a matter of protecting national security. >> what was once peaceful and uncontested is now crowded and adversarial. >> the administration is now lobbying for support, authorization and allocating of federal funds for the space force does require congressional approval. in washington, lauren blanchard fox news. >> thank you, kristin, let's
bring former obama field director robin byro and brad blakeman. this reminds me like star wars, that didn't pan out what the administration thought it would, what do you make of this new space force? >> the reagan star wars plan worked quite well because it brought russia to the table to talk about decallization -- deescalation of nuclear weapons. america needs this, we need to protect space, the billions and billions of dollars in infrastructure up there, so we have to protect what's above us and what's below us and the chinese and the russians are already working very aggressive in this area, we would be negligent, negligent if the president didn't preserve and protect the united states from space. cheryl: when you first hear the
number $8 billion, that's a lot of money, but to brad's point, you know, the chinese and russians are working on antisatellite weapons, a lot of satellites are crucial to u.s. troops in the ground, whether it's afghanistan or syria, aircraft carriers in persian gulf, they need satellites, russians and chinese maybe have something that they're thinking is a good threat against us and this would be a good way to protect us. >> i see your point, it's a very good one. this falls under the purview of the air force, that's where i don't see a need for new brand of the military specifically for this and i actually disagree, i don't think it's a tremendous amount of money, but when we have been told that there's enough not enough for like clean water in flint, michigan and shot down for medicare for all and college tuition and all the other things that we could be
using this money for, i want to say that my special operations friends don't see this as good idea, they see this as waste of funds, i think it's a distraction. cheryl: you know what your friends have another friend and that's astronaut scott kelly, listen to what he said on fox business about this. >> i have not had anyone say that this is a practical use of $8 billion, at least to me. so i have not come across anyone that has taken this very seriously and think it's something that is, you know, a necessary part of our defense strategy. cheryl: brad, he's saying it may not be necessary. >> it's absolutely friend downs like debbie downer. [laughter] cheryl: follow on instagram and you'll change your mind. >> what do we need cars for, horses are perfectly fine. we have got to keep up with technology, we have to keep up with threats as they exist and there's trade-offs in life, we have to make it within our
budget, we have to trim our budget to make sure that first and foremost america is safe and secure, we don't have a country unless we are safe and secure both at home and abroad. cheryl: what do you make, though of jim ma his changing tune, as reporter told us previously he said it's a great idea and we want to show the viers all of the logos that the trump administration, actually president trump is saying not only new log's to pick from but will sell items that have log's on them, robin, what do you make of that? >> this is a tough sale, i hate the poo-poo the idea, it's redundant because it falls under the purview of the air force so i don't see why we can't beef up the capabilities of the air force to already cover this without overspending, i like to see republicans as being fiscal conservatives and here i am as a
democrat saying i think it's gratiitis way of funds. cheryl: army and air force and the navy split to monitor and that's another fair question for that, robin, brad, guys, thank you so much for being here. lauren: this was fun. cheryl: who needs cars, we have horses. lauren: who needs shoes because adidas sales are up and they are taking rival. tracee: adidas is racing past competition nike, adidas sales in north america grew compare today nike 3% gain for quarter and in may adidas which also owns reebok is gaining market share in north america which is the largest sneaker market in
